The real problem is that Jeff has fathered children all over the country and a couple more in Mexico. For shame.
Well, that's common knowledge. But none of them were black, were they?
You can have all the kids you want, with as many women as you want, and you're viewed as a super-potent stud (i.e. Mick Jagger).
But--good heavens!--if word gets out that even one of them is black, that's when all hell breaks loose (i.e. Thomas Jefferson, Strom Thurmond, John McCain, Bill Cosby, etc., etc.).
And that was the final nail in the coffin of Jeff's campaign, I'm afraid.
